Nzoner's Game Room>Chiefs hire Steve Spagnuolo as new defensive coordinator
TLO 04:33 PM 01-24-2019

The #Chiefs are hiring Steve Spagnuolo as their new defensive coordinator, sources say. The former #Giants DC and interim HC/#Rams HC began his NFL coaching career as an #Eagles assistant under Andy Reid. Now rejoins Big Red in KC.

Just bookmark this thread because I will eat crow if I’m wrong. But we will be around the same next year with less sacks is my call

I know. What I am saying is why would we so desperately want him gone? He's on the staff purely because of nepotism, but at least he does his job. DeLeone better get the fuck out now, with Harris not far behind.

I think that Williams was just signed on a one year deal, so I'm not sure that he'll be back. What about Speaks? I would assume that he's your DE. I assume that Ragland won't be back. Buffalo traded him to us when they switched to a 4-3 because he didn't fit. It'll be interesting to see if Ford is tagged and traded. After this year, he will be starting if he's not traded. And what about Neimann? Does he fit the 4-3?

You think other teams donít know we are not going to pay him. He has no place in a 4-3

Right now there are three very good explanations for his last three defenses shortcomings. We will see if they are excuses, or if they are reasons. I have no expectations of a consistent top 10 defense. But I really doubt his defense is going to be one of the worst. I think his floor is bottom third with a decent shot to be top 20.

I will be shocked if Britt Reid still isn't coaching for us next year.
Andy can always find a position for Britt, on either side of the ball. Too early to guess what changes Spags will make on position coaches. But he could ax the whole group and Britt could still have a job.

If none of the other coaches are fired then I will be less than thrilled. They are the ones the players spend most if not all their time with and the ILB's and DB's all fucking sucked. Sutton sucked but so did most of the other defensive coaches.

The point was about the status quo. Whether Andy hired one of his buddies and everything is going to stay the same? Normally a new coordinator strips things down and kicks ass. They want their guys, not someone else's.

If the only thing that changes is the name of our Defensive Coordinator then that is disappointing.


It will be interesting to see what happens.

Well he has had two 32nd ranked defenses so donít doubt the man!

Barring a complete overhaul of the coaching staff....I'd move Mike Smith to LBs coach, keep Reid at defensive line and trash Harris/Thomas.

Just saw a horrifying stat about our 2018 defense. We gave up 26.2 first downs per game (wtf?) and the next worse was Cleveland at 23.6.
